The past few weeks have been such a whirlwind. An unexpected 2-week trip to Berlin for a funeral and then flying immediately to Palm Springs for a food blogger retreat. It seems like a lifetime ago that I had the opportunity to wander around Portland with the lovely Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34, checking out all the best design spots for a Travel Portland promotion.
I'll be sharing some of the other spots that Erin and I visited, but unsurprisingly, the first stop of the day was Spartan Shop, which is worth a post of its own. Spartan Shop is a beautiful space filled with thoughtfully curated items: tableware, home goods, furniture, books, jewelry, fine art, and much more. It's pretty hard not to want one of everything.
Currie Person, a native Texan, first opened the shop in Austin where it quickly gained a following before relocating her family and eventually the shop to Portland. Such a fantastic addition to the city and I loved getting an in-depth look at the space with Erin.
